How It Works
You dig up some of your old embarrassing childhood artifacts (old letters, lyrics, journals, cassettes, artwork, plays, videos, even old blogs).
You request a producer’s session on the form on this page.
We meet up and help you identify excerpts & a backstory that our audience will love.
You share the results on stage.
Someone in the audience returns home, inspired to unearth their own stuff! (Fun, eh?)
